Gracie Jiu-Jitsu -
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu - Jiu-Jitsu, translated as 'the gentle art,' is the oldest form of martial art. It has also been defined with terms like yielding, softness, subtleness, and pliability. Its origins date back to India more than 2,000 years before Christ. From there it spread throughout Asia and eventually settled in Japan. In 1914, Japanese Jiu-Jitsu champion Esai Maeda arrived in Brazil to help establish a Japanese immigration colony. Once in Brazil he was aided by Gastao Gracie, a Brazilian scholar and politician of Scottish decent. To show his gratitude, the oriental master taught the ancient secrets of this fighting style to Gastao's son, Carlos Gracie. Carlos taught Maeda's techniques to his brothers: Oswaldo, Gastao, Jorge and Helio and in 1925 they opened the first Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Botafogo, a district of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This is where the brothers, prompted by Carlos, essentially designed and laid the foundation for “Brazilian” Jiu-Jitsu. The Ultimate Fighting Championship was conceived by the Gracie Family, making this system a must for all MMA competitors. For truly they are the king of the mats.

Boxing skills are absolutely neccesary for anyone who wants to compete in mixed martial arts. You cannot step into the ring or cage with the well rounded fighters of today if you are missing this important part of the mixed martial arts puzzle.

Self Defense -
Self-Defense is based on the self-defense techniques refined by the Gracie family from Brazil. Age, physical ability, and body type do not hinder a person that utilizes this system. The techniques stress ease of application and few steps to neutralize your attacker. It is a straightforward way to defend you that does not require hours of extreme physical training. Due to the seriousness of an assault, repetition of the techniques is high in this course so that you are competent if you ever need to protect yourself. This course is offered based upon demand.
